Life Size Cutouts
This takes us back to the 2008 New Hampshire primary. We printed life-size cutouts of the contenders for an event sponsored by a major publication. It was a hoot!
We actually made two life size cutouts of Obama, and he lurked around the office for over a year. Gave me quite a start a number of times when I came in over the weekend.
Life size cutouts can be a lot of fun, from things like 50th wedding celebrations, take your picture with a star, etc. We print a lot of them, let us print one for you!
Machine Floor Template
We have switched technologies for printing machine bolt templates, from using aqueous printers to our new UV printer.
There are a couple of good reasons for the switch. First of all, we find the UV printers are more accurate, giving us very long machine bolt templates that are right on the required dimensions. We are able to hold within a millimeter in five meters, or .02% accuracy!
The other advantage is that the UV cured ink is not water soluble. In fact, it’s not even solvent soluble! On the off chance that the machine bolt template gets wet or oily, the printing on the mylar templates will not be affected.
If you need a template to make it easier to install your equipment, give us a call! We can make very large templates by fitting together panels of 36″ or 54″ wide mylar.
Custom Printed Yoga Mat
Our UV printers do a great job of printing on yoga mats! We can print logos, names, photos, you name it. The colors are bright and happy, and the printing is durable.
We put them in several high traffic areas of our shop, and they still look brand new after over three months of being crisscrossed all day.
We stock five colors of yoga mats: blue, green, orange, purple and red. Get us artwork and we’ll ship within a week.
Minimum order is 10 custom printed yoga mats. Pricing depends on quantity and the size of the printing on a standard 24×68″ yoga mat. Call us and let us price up a custom yoga mat for you!
Large Floor Graphic
We printed this beach scene on Walk-N-Wall vinyl and put it in front of the door to our shop! So far, it’s holding up very well, and makes you feel like you are at the beach instead of New Hampshire in winter!
This particular wall and floor vinyl has a thick layer of adhesive that makes it suitable for not-so-smooth surfaces like concrete and asphalt, as well as concrete block and PVC walls. We thought nothing would stick to FRP wall panels, but this stuff does!
We actually find that people use it for way-finding signage on factory floors, labeling of areas, and safety signage.
Most wall covering is made for application to drywall, which is pretty smooth. This material works a lot better when the wall has a heavy texture.
Let us make some signage for your walks and walls!
Here’s an innovation that we are using for packing smaller pieces, it’s called Geami.
We were using a lot of bubble wrap, and a salesman suggested that we give this a try. We love it! It costs about the same, but uses a sustainable resource as well as taking up a lot less room in our facility. As a guy who has been selling most his life, I appreciate a sales guy who becomes a resource!
Geami comes to us as two rolls of paper, the kraft (brown) roll is perforated so that, as it comes off the machine, it becomes a honeycomb.
The white layer keeps the kraft layer from going back to flat when it’s pressed against something flat. At least, that’s how I understand it.
What you wind up with is something that cushions our shipment as well as bubble wrap, without putting plastic into a landfill. That’s good for the environment, and good for us!
Museum Wall Mural
Here’s a wall mural that I saw in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam last summer. Not our work, unfortunately, but certainly the sort of thing we do. It was sections of several self portraits, blown up to wall size, with the actual original paintings on display. Very cool.
Generally, if you get us a good hi-resolution photo we can make outstanding looking wall murals that are faithful to color and very attention getting.
The whole process takes about two weeks, faster if you are in a jam. Give us a call to get started with your wall mural!
